Carolina Master Chorale This Weekend

An American Songbook:
From the American Church to Basin Street to Broadway

The Carolina Master Chorale, Timothy Koch, conductor, presents its season finale, “An American Songbook:  From the American Church to Basin Street to Broadway”.  The concert spans a broad spectrum of American music opening with hymn anthems from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and suites from the smash hit musicals, “Les Miserables” and “Phantom of the Opera” and elegant vocal jazz.

Soprano Jo Nell Koch and the Long Bay Symphony Chamber Orchestra open the second half performing Samuel Barber’s beloved “Knoxville: Summer of 1915” on a prose text by James Agee.  This work has been widely popularized in recordings by sopranos Leontyne Price and Dawn Upshaw.  The famous “Old American Songs” of Aaron Copland close the concert, sung by baritone Jeffrey Jones, and accompanied by the Chorale.   The great baritone, William Warfeild, premiered these highly entertaining songs with the New York Philharmonic in the late 1950’s.
